Memories ...
20 January 2004 | by (Fairfield County, CT) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this beautiful film when I was a little girl ... being captivated by Dot and Kangaroo's adventures in the Australian wild, and then being moved to tears at the end when they part. 20 years have now passed since my first viewing, and it still brings bittersweet tears to my eyes.
